Robot Demonstration

by NASA

Published 6/17/2009


NASA Glenn Research Center's Mobile and Remote Sensing team demonstrates the Cratos robot for the local Department of Homeland Security office and local law enforcement bomb squads. Named for the Greek god of strength, Cratos originally was built to ascend and descend lunar craters, a capability necessary to search for water ice in permanently dark craters on the moon. The demonstration showed how a modified Cratos can retrieve soil samples for HAZMAT operations, put a smaller robot with a video camera on a bus to search for bo
mbs and climb stairs to enter buildings. These remote control capabilities are designed to put distance between first responders and the natural and manmade disasters they may encounter. Photographer: Bridget Caswell (WYLE)
